Another one to try on our economy drive was cheaper cereals and first on the list were Tesco Value Cornflakes. They came in a cheap plastic bag that looked like something contained crisps or petfood rather than cereal but as promised to the Mrs, I gave them a go. They were just under 50p for a bag that's got 500g in it so they really are cheap as anything. In fact I think that price is about a quarter of what we pay for Kellogg's cornflakes. Onto the taste test and yes, I could really tell the difference here between my usual Kelloggs and the cheap imposters that saved us a few pence. They have a really stale texture to them and the taste is a ... Read the complete review

In general, Cornflakes seem to be one of the most popular breakfast cereals. Kellogs seem to have the monopoly on being considered the best in terms of quality of product, although the pricing war looks like going to supermarket's own value brands. Tesco Value Corn Flakes are one of many Value products on offer from the supermarket giant, and one of many of the range I used when I was at University in an attempt to reduce my weekly budget in order to be able to sink a few pints in the Union on a Friday night! Now my taste buds are a little more refined and I generally want a better product, I tend to still go for the Tesco brand, but their own brand instead of ... Read the complete review

==Background:== When I was growing up we always seemed to have a box of Corn Flakes in our house. As a result of many years this was my choice of breakfast. These days there seems far my choice with the market place but I still plumb for this one once in a while as I still enjoy the taste and the feeling of sunshine that it gives me. However, because times are quite hard at the moment when I came to purchase my Corn Flakes this time I opted for the Tesco Value option instead of the branded ones. The Tesco Value range are cheaper alternatives that sometimes taste as good as the branded ones but cover an assortment of goods from baked beans to rice ... Read the complete review

A Tesco Value Cornflakes are the poor person's cornflake. They come in a plastic bag rather than a cardboard box, but ironically they taste more like cardboard. The breakfast cereal is consumed in the usual manner. Served in a bowl with the addition of milk... I'll refrain from giving you directions. Like millions of others, I have been persuaded by the marketing since childhood that such cereals are somehow good for you and that they are an healthy addition to a balanced diet. Like many I have grown up with highly processed flake cereals. But in recent years I have cut down and for the past few months I have stopped eating such cereals altogether. Cornflakes ...

Several weeks ago I took my granddaughter on a 70 mile drive so se and I could stay over at my sister's house. In the morning my sister made a rack of toast for the adults and put out a bowl of corn flakes to my granddaughter. As my granddaughter did not want them she had my toast and I set about eating the corn flakes, one spoonful in and I knew it was certainly not Kellogg's I was eating and my sister could clearly see I was not enjoying them. She told me I was eating Tesco value cornflakes and not to feel obliged to finish them if I was not enjoying them, so I immediately ceased eating. The flakes were smaller than the ones in Kellogg's and they ... Read the complete review
